Apple updates Mac mini range

Prices begin at £529

Apple has announced a new range of Mac minis, sporting Intel's Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt ports.

The announcement comes on the same day that the company unveiled a new range of MacBook Airs, a new Thunderbolt Display and official unveiled Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.

"Mac mini delivers the speed and expandability that makes it perfect for the desktop, living room or office," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.

"With faster processors, more powerful graphics and Thunderbolt in an incredibly compact, aluminum design, the new Mac mini is more versatile than ever."

Available in three different configurations, you can choose a Mac mini with the latest dual-core Intel Core i5 or Intel Core i7 processors, AMD Radeon HD 6630M discrete graphics, or a quad-core Intel Core i7 powered server configuration.

The 2.3 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 Mac mini with 2GB of memory and a 500GB hard drive starts at a suggested retail price of £529 inc VAT, with options to add memory up to 8GB and a 750GB hard drive.

The 2.5 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 Mac mini with 4GB of memory and a 500GB hard drive starts at a suggested retail price of £699 inc VAT, with options to upgrade to a 2.7GHz dual-core Core i7 processor, up to 8GB of memory, and a 750GB hard drive with an option to add or replace with a 256GB solid state drive.

The 2.0 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 Mac mini with Lion Server, 4GB of memory and dual 500GB hard drives starts at a suggested retail price of £849 inc VAT. Options include adding memory up to 8GB, two 750GB hard drives, or up to two 256GB solid state drives.

You can order the new Mac mini now and units will arrive in Apple Stores tomorrow, the company said.
